Our friends invited us for lunch at the Urban Thai Bistro in Yaletown. We all decided to order from the lunch combo menu (about $10-11) where you get in addition to your main a spring roll & salad. I don't recall what my husband and friends ordered but they said that they enjoyed their selections. The spring roll & salad... More

I'll begin with the statement that a $3 local craft beer at happy hour is an unheard of price. And the beer was tasty. So tasty we each had two. The happy hour appies were also tasty, from fish cakes and beef salad to chicken and spring rolls. It was all delightful, with attentive service. Why 4 stars and not... More

My first visit to Urban Thai was interesting. It is a bigger restaurant then one would think. The ambience is not bad. They have a special lunch menu, with a good selection of dishes. Service was swift for a group over 20 people. The meal was average - I have had better thai food elsewhere. The price is right for... More

I visited Urban Thai Bistro with my family for an early dinner. The restaurant was very empty at the time however this shouldn't deter you from having a meal here. The service was excellent and the food was nice. Good serving size and priced accordingly. In my opinion the restaurant is in a great location and was walking distance from... More

I have eaten at the Urban Thai a few times as they can offer a vegetarian dish, they also will deliver. Not sure if there has been a change in management but does not seem to be customer centric as before. We went on a Sunday fairly quiet but had to wait 30min for my entrée. The spring rolls were...

I was quite disappointed with my meal; Pad Thai with shrimp and spring rolls. Both items seemed to have come out of a package from the grocery store. The Pad Thai was bland and lacked diversity - simply orange-died noodles with a touch of shrimp, bean sprouts and peanuts. The spring rolls were the same. Lacking in flavour and overall... More

Visited Urban Thai Bistro on a Friday night, after 7:30pm. The restaurant was empty except for 4 people. Due to it's location on Hamilton Street in trendy Yale Town, parking was impossible. We parked 3 blocks away and walked in Vancouver's pouring rain. We ordered the Pad Namman with chicken and the yellow curry chicken and jasmine rice. We informed... More

What a lovely restaurant not far from our hotel the Opus. The food was plentiful and tasty. The service was quick and efficient. There is plenty of space so wheelchair accessible and comfortable.

Urban Thai offers large portions of reasonably good and reasonably priced thai food. They offer free delivery which is great if you're in the area. It is a decent thai place but lacks a bit of charm and the food is just ok.

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighbourhood Profile
Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
